As most of us in the Julia community know, Julia has an issue. Let’s take a closer look.


The julia package Tokenize is used to perform lexical analysis on Julia source code and the number of occurrences of identifiers is investigated for Julia 0.5 and 0.6 as well as a large corpus of source code from packages. What identifier will win? Read to find out!


Analysis and optimization of a small code snippet posted on the Julia discourse mailing list.


Open Source

Here are some of the open source projects I have created or been involved with:


  • NearestNeighbors.jl – High performance nearest neighbor data structures and algorithms.
  • Tensors.jl – Efficient computations with symmetric and non-symmetric tensors with support for automatic differentiation.
  • OhMyREPL.jl – Syntax highlighting and other enhancements for the Julia REPL.
  • Crayons.jl – Colored and styled strings for terminals.
  • PGFPlotsX.jl – Seamlessly create plots in Julia using the PGFPlots LaTeX package.
  • Pardiso.jl – Calling the PARDISO sparse solver library.
  • Tokenize.jl –Tokenization for Julia source code.
  • TimerOutputs.jl – Formatted output of timed sections.
  • BlockArrays.jl – Interface for blocked arrays.
  • Distances.jl – A Julia package for evaluating distances(metrics) between vectors.
  • NLsolve.jl – Julia solvers for systems of nonlinear equations and mixed complementarity problems
  • MMA.jl – The “Method of Moving Asymptotes”-algorithm. (old package)


  • Phon – Insert cohesive elements between grains in microstructures.
  • FeynSimul – Path Integral simulations using Python OpenCL for computations on GPUs.
